Why was the first thing that popped into my head after you said cake was that we'd all shoot it? :lol:

Why the hell would I take the track INTO kowyam!!! :lol:

Id definitely recommend bringing something along. .don't know how much shooting will be done as getting permission for a few people the landowners don't know may prove problematic but there's a couple of stations where I'll definitely ask the question and there's always the chance of a pig or dog on my block. :thumbsup: :drinks:

The biggest problem facing you in trying to organize a trip like this is,,,,,,

1) A lot of people might want to go but very few can manage it all at the same time.
2) The process of preparing your vehicle properly, and getting a good spare parts collection, etc is often quite daunting and puts a lot of people off.
3) Then, the almighty dollar comes to play (especially in light of current fuel prices),,,, and the higher cost of it when off the beaten track.

Yeah this is true!
However the way I'm looking at it is I'm going regardless so if people are able to get here they know the dates I'm planning on leaving. I figure I'll bump this thread around every couple of months for people to keep in mind and if nobody makes it I'll post photos when I get back!!! :thumbsup: :drinks: .
